    All the cases Owens cited were examples of organised crime, illicit national and transnational networks that have multiplied since the 1980s and now make an annual £1.5tn around the world and £37bn, or 1.8% of GDP, in Britain. It was to tackle this threat that the NCA was established five years ago as a national intelligence and police force – inevitably described in the press as the closest thing Britain has to an FBI. What to many might sound like a terrifying catalogue of crime, then, is to Owens, as the NCA’s director-general, a to-do list. Since we spoke, Owens’s...

    Aaron Schlossberg, a lawyer in New York, was caught on camera berating staff members of a restaurant for speaking Spanish with customers. A lot of multilingual countries promote an official language, but the United States has never done so with English. In fact, the US has no official language. "The Founding Fathers didn't see a need to declare one," Dr. Wayne Wright, a professor of language and literacy at Purdue University, told CNN. "English was pretty much the dominant language of the United States at the time and they didn't want to offend their fellow Americans who helped fight for...

    An Australian and two Americans were gored by bulls during the second day of the running of the bulls in Pamplona. Australian Nick Headlam was injured as he was rammed into a fence by a 1,300lb bull. But in true Aussie style, the 29-year-old laughed and saluted to the crowd as he was stretchered away along the cobbled streets, covered in blood and with a drip attacked to his arm. One of the gored Americans, veteran Pamplona runner Al Chesson, 57, spent a terrifying half-minute being thrown around and jabbed by a snorting bull in the narrow alley leading into...
